Chicken breasts stuffed with soft cheese, wrapped in bacon, and drizzled with honey. Very easy and tastes amazing. I have lost count of the amount of times I have made this. It's a family favourite, and goes very well with either roasted vegetables, such as aubergine, peppers, courgettes, etc., & sauteed potatoes or salad and potato salad.

This chicken was absolutely fantastic. I have no idea what the other reviewers are talking about as it had so much flavor it was incredible. I couldn't find Boursin cheese at my grocery store so I substituted honey nut cream cheese for it and it was absolutely scrumptious. Read More

This recipe has some possibility...as is it has almost no flavor. The parts of the chicken with just honey on it is too bland...adding some spices or breading and cutting the honey might help. Read More

You could not have better chicken with only 4 ingredients. This is very simple and very tasty. I prepared as is but when I went to put the honey on the chicken the bacon was not cooked much so I added the honey and turned the oven up to 400 degrees baked 10 more minutes & it came out perfect. Will definitely make again. Only gave 4 stars because it wasn't the best chicken ever but it is excellent & easy. Read More

I read the reviews and made a couple of minor changes that I think made all the difference for the success of the dish. We half-way-cooked the bacon before wrapping the chicken. Also once the chicken was wrapped in bacon and placed in the baking dish we sprinkled the bundles with dried thyme and misted them with olive oil. Our chicken pieces were large so they needed about 35 minutes to cook but that was not a problem. We enjoyed the recipe and will use it again in the future. Read More

This was tasty but as the other review's have said you can not taste much of the honey and I but way more of it on the chicken than called for. The bacon was taking longer to cook so I turned the oven up to 400 degrees for the last 10 minutes of baking like someone else stated to do in one of the previous reviews and the bacon then turned out perfect. All in all like this recipe and will be using again but will try and spice it up a little more next time. Read More

I made this last night and it was WONDERFUL! My husband and I both ate it up and wanted more. I only gave it 4 stars because the bacon didnt cook very well and I cooked it a lot longer than suggested. I think I may slightly precook the bacon next time to see how it comes out. This will definatly be made every few weeks at my house. Read More

I made this last night for the first time girlfriend. I still have 2 pieces left over which we are going to eat today. I didn't really get a strong honey flavor. But that didn't take away from the great taste. Read More
